Honoring Carlos' legacy with an all-new SE Santana.
An all-new SE Santana!Carlos Santana's impact as a proud player of Paul Reed Smith guitars led to the introduction in 2001 of the SE guitar series. In recognition of his legacy, PRS developed the all-new SE Santana. The first guitar in the SE series offered with a 24-1/2" scale length, the SE Santana is also the first SE using the same body shape as the American-built PRS Santana models. With a fat, wide mahogany neck and 22-fret fingerboard inlaid with the classic PRS birds, it' got plenty of visual mojo to match the PRS humbucking pickups™ shimmering clean or rich, creamy distorted tones. Tuners and tremolo, also designed by PRS, are meant to be used, abused, and still keep you in tune. The all-new SE Santana honors Carlos™ legendary tone and incendiary playing, with incredible quality at a great price.Use the drop-down menu above and to the right to choose colors and other options.

Great starter guitar
I have owned this guitar for 6 months and play every day for up to 2 hours a session. Its reliable, fun and looks pretty darn cool for a starter. It will only set you back around £600 max. The only real drawback is that the floating tremolo bar is a bit of a pain to re tune. For instance, going to E flat tuning, the guitar likes to fight against you and often goes straight out of tune. It might take three attempts of re tuning before it stays at the desired range. I can see now why spending a little bit extra on a solid body without a floating tremolo would be beneficial. I have also had the strings replaced 4 times as they don't hold out so well on the standard 9's. This might just be down to the strings, not the guitars build. Sounds great with 11s!
